We have just returned from the Fox where we had afternoon tea "picnicbench" style! It was a fantastic experience, the concept is true genius and just proves that if you offer something unique, then you will thrive.

I have been to the fox on numerous occasions over the past few years and can truthfully say that I enjoy going over whether it's for a meal, a snack, drinks or entertainment. I often go with my partner and have taken several friends and family over the years. The food is very good, I don't recall having ever been... More

Really enjoyed the novelty of the picnic bench afternoon tea. Got so much we had to take some home! Also feel that it is reasonably priced for what you get, a big selection and not just sandwiches like on many afternoon teas. It was very busy as it was Easter Sunday but did not feel like this affected the service... More

Went on Good Friday as a treat for my two girls for Easter.. We had heard so many good things and had been looking forward to it for a number of weeks. It started well, we were shown to our table fairly quickly and our afternoon tea order was taken. It arrived and did look beautiful however there were items... More
